As rumored Xperia C has been launched with MediaTek’s processor 1.2GHz Quad Core, Sony’s first phone on that chipset. Xperia C S39h weighs 153 gram even heavier that Xperia Z. Xperia C S39h is a lot thicker with dimensions as 141.5 x 74.15 x 8.88 mm. Other key specification of Xperia S39h are:-

How to Flash Xperia S, SL Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.211 World-India ftf file

Sony released Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.211 firmware officially for Xperia S LT26i, Xperia SL LT26ii and Xperia Acro S LT26w on 11 June, 10 days later when the first build of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 launched for above three handsets. As told by sources, Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.211 firmware didn’t land world-wide.

[ Update ] – 26 August

Xperia S,SL,Acro S 6.2.B.1.96 firmware Rolled NOW – Major Update fixed 1080p HD Video Lag, Volume Up button bug.

For Indian Users :- Xperia S Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.211 firmware was reported by many users in India, but Xperia SL LT26ii users still haven’t got the official notification via PC Companion or SUS. We have been receiving mails since it’s launch and we have not seen a single Xperia SL LT26ii user in India who has got the notification.  Now we have brought a solution for Xperia SL LT26ii Indian users 🙂

Note :- Type *#*#7378423#*#* and then go to “Service Info” > “Software Info” and check file system version. For India users it must be like “WORLD_6.2.B.0.211In India normally Brand – World firmware is updated. If it is then you can update by following our manual flashing guide.

Xperia ZU Togari HomeScreen Notification Panel Screenshots Leaked

Following more leaks prior to the launch of beast Xperia Z Ultra as Xperia ZU codenamed as Xperia Togari. It is begin speculated that Sony Mobile may launch Xperia ZU Togari on 25 June in a press event at Munich, Germany.

Xperia ZU Togari Notification Panel Screenshots Leaked

The screen size looks gigantically large 😛 It seems impossible to operate Xperia Togari from one hand. Person who posted on XDA claims that Xperia ZU is still not the final name of the phone. The black theme new Xperia wallpaper put on the Xperia ZU Togari homescreen looks a bit different from what came in the recent Xperia 2013 lineup.

Certainly It will feature Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and many new Xperia tweaks. A new Xperia Home launcher can be seen, notice the “menu” button, in the android 4.1.2 jelly bean, Xperia provided it as square consisting of 12 small white squares and in this new android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean home launcher it appeared as 9 small dots comprising a square. Icon of “Playstation” mobile seems a bit different also.

Soon we will see the official listing of this beast Xperia ZU Togari hopefully.

From press invites of Sony Mobile Communication events in Germany and France to the leaked pics, new Sony Xperia phablet ZU has seen a number of leaks till yet. It is rumored to be announced on June 25 at a press event at Germany. Well just now something more related to this Sony Xperia phablet ZU has been leaked i.e. the AnTuTu Benchmark scores.

Xperia phbalet ZU Benchmark scores leaked- 32173 AnTuTu points

As you can see in the above pic, the device is codenamed as “ymmh5y0n5zeaouu” which is seen in the AnTuTu benchmark registers. Results shows that this mysterious device runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean tested in UK scoring a whopping 32173 points and running a 2.2 GHz processor.

It makes this device the first one to cross the 32000 points on AnTuTu benchmarks. Rumors are there that this mysterious device can be Xperia phbalet ZU codenamed as Xperia Togari or Xperia Z Ultra running Snapdragon 800 MSM 8974 powered chipset. A few days back we saw rumored Galaxy S4 Snapdragon 800 device scoring 31491 running on Exynos 5 Octa. Well if rumors are true then Xperia ZU benchmarks results have beaten up rumored Galaxy S4 Snapdragon 800 device 😛

Well if it is to be believed than surely Xperia phablet ZU will be the fastest android device ever made. Fingers crossed, June 25 is not so very far and if it is true, a new Xperia device will join the happy family of Xperia smartphones.

What do you think regarding this leaked benchmark results…

Something big is cooking at Sony Mobile Communications now, yes this is the sound of  new range of Xperia smartphones as Sony’s first phablet. Xperia Z Ultra, rumored as Xperia ZU and codenamed as Xperia Togari‘s first teasing image has been leaked now. The image of Xperia Z Ultra which shows the side of it is from a Sony Mobile France’s Press invite which is going to take place in Paris on 4 July.

Sony Mobile France Press meet at Paris on 4 July 2013

The snapshot from Sony Mobile France Press meet invite at Paris on 4 July read as “Sony Mobile vous réserve une surprise de taille” which is translated as “Sony Mobile offers a big surprise“. It also read as “Jeudi 4 Juillet a 9h30” Paris 09 “N’oubliez pas de le noter dans vos agendas” which means “Thursday, July 4 at 9:30 am” Paris 09 “Do not forget to mark your calendars“. A pen has been used to write this, which may depict that Xperia Z Ultra as rumored till now will come with a stylus pen or pencil as an input device just similar to Samsung Note 2.

Check the Sony Mobile France Press meet invite below which rumored shows the first impression of Xperia Z Ultra or Xperia ZU Tograi in the photo…

Xperia Z Ultra Photo Leaked from Sony Mobile Press Invite in France

It surely depicts the launch of new Xperia product. No name has been mentioned but by looking at the pic it is speculated as Xperia Z Ultra or Xperia ZU Togari. This will be the first product in the phablet range from Sony which will be put against Samsung Note 3. Till now it’s just a rumor only. A few days ago we saw a press invite of Sony in the Germany which will be held on 25 June and Xperia Z Ultra pic leaked with cat on top with some specifications.

By looking at the photo leaked above, it is seen that the device or Xperia Z Ultra is definitely a phablet, with power button at side, earphone jack, volume up and down buttons just similar to Xperia Z. Camera dedicated button is also there at the bottom side. It looks very thin from side, we posted it’s dimension as 179.2 x 92 x 6.5mm. An uncertainty is there on the water and dust resistant capability of this phablet as you noticed that earphone jack is not covered up, it’s open. Well let’s see what it comes with as soon it is going to be unveiled.

25 June or 4 July is not very far, soon we will see the launch of Sony’s first phablet. Are you excited about it ? Yes we are…do let us know your views regarding this phablet.
